It looks like "The Flash" movie will be canceled at least until the movie finds another replacement director as its current one, Rick Famuyiwa, has decided to drop the project. The reason for his departure has not yet been disclosed but many are speculating that it's the same reason why the first assigned director also left.
When the announcement of "The Flash" movie was first publicized, Seth Grahame-Smith was the original director assigned for the project. However, the director decided to quit just last April due to issues about "creative differences"
It can be remembered that Famuyiwa even shared a draft photo of his revisions on the script and the female lead role's casting and said that it was a dream come true to work on something that was a part of his childhood. This means that the production has already started and something must have made the director change his mind. Rumors claim that the studio didn't agree with the visions of the director.
In a statement released from Famuyiwa, the director says "I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humor and heart. While it's disappointing that we couldn't come together creatively on the project, I remain grateful for the opportunity. I will continue to look for opportunities to tell stories that speak to a fresh generational, topical and multicultural point of view. I wish Warner Bros., DC, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns and Ezra Miller all the best as they continue their journey into the speed force"
The movie is expected to start filming early next year so it could be ready for its supposed release date in March of 2018 but without a director and a writer, it is assumed that the movie will be further delayed.
